Mark Cuddihy added â€œDelighted to bring Joey back for another season, Joe is a class act and the knowledge he has gained playing in the Elite league proved invaluable to us last season. He helped the team on and off the ice and everyone in the club can learn from him. We will also be looking to get him qualified as a coach this summer. Â On the ice he was fantastic. Heâ€™s too good for this league and we are very lucky to have 2 fantastic goalies, it makes a big difference through the season knowing that we have the best goalie partnership in the league by farâ€
Joe Myres continued “We had a great team and a very good first season. It was a pleasure to play with the guys and I think anyone who came to watch our games will see that we are more than just teammates we are a real family. Next season we are looking to go one better. I’ve kept in contact with Cudd throughout the summer and we are looking to improve the team so we can make it over that final hurdle and win ourselves promotion. We had great support from, family, friends and supporters and hoping with a little extra next season we’ll achieve even better things.
